New South Wales voters care more about the privatisation of state-owned assets than Queenslanders did before their landslide election, a new survey shows.
Fourteen per cent of NSW voters say asset sales are their top concern, the ABC Vote Compass survey has found.
Before the Queensland election in January, where privatisation plans were partly blamed for the Liberal National Party’s loss, the same survey had 11 per cent of the state’s voters ticking asset sales as their No.1 issue.
The results of the survey released on Thursday show asset sales were the second most important issue, while the economy ranked as the top priority among nearly 10,000 respondents. The cost of living, education and the environment were the next most important issues.
NSW goes to the polls on March 28.
